Kangana Ranaut on JNU violence: Don't make it a national issue

Recently, Kangana Ranaut has reacted to the campus violence at the Jawaharlal Nehru University, calling it a 'gang war' and said that it should not be politicsed to make a national issue. 

She also suggested that. 'the police must take action on the people responsible, put them to custody and beat the hell out of them."

Kangana is presently busy with the promotions of her upcoming film, Panga. Speaking to the media on the sidelines of the promotions, the actor said about the Sunday incident where students and faculty members were attacked by a masked mob. The attack on the JNU students is currently being investigated. It is understood that there are two sides, namely, JNU and ABVP, two different unions, in the university.

Gang wars in colleges are so common that when, "I was in college at Chandigarh, I used to stay at a girls hostel alongside a boys hostel where people were followed and murdered in broad daylight. A boy once jumped into our hostel who was about to get killed by a mob, but our hostel manager saved him.” Media reports on her comments were shared by sister Rangoli Chandel on Twitter.

She went on to say, “I would like to say that these gang wars are managed by powerful and dangerous people, which leaves both the sides hurt; such things should not be made into a national issue. Police should take perpetrators into custody and give them four slaps each. Such people are found everywhere in every street, college and they should not be made national issue because such issues don’t deserve it.”
